  • The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures is a must-see for any age group. I believe a visit will bring some long-forgotten joy to anyone for at least a day. There are toys dating back to the 1800s and beyond to delight the elderly. Toy displays from the 50s through the 70s can make the middle-aged feel young again. There are toys from the '80s, 90s, and up to the present, which are fun for younger generations. The dollhouse area is not just for little girls, although they are a dream come true for many little girls. My husband was even in awe of these displays. My favorite dollhouse was the giant one. They are just beautiful! What I liked most about this entire museum was the displays of miniatures. I cannot begin to tell you how impressive, exquisite, beautiful, and unbelievable these miniature displays are! I couldn't get enough of them! The tiniest pieces are the most incredible! It was a wonderful experience, and I would go back again just to spend more time in the "miniatures" section.
  • I'm biased because I love miniatures. I accidentally found this on Google Maps when planning a weekend in KC and I was delighted. The museum is in a great location, near other touristy stops. It is full of miniatures, well labeled, and nicely explained. It was active but not busy. I will return when I next visit KC. The toy portion of the museum wasn't labeled as well, but was still interesting - seeing toys from your childhood that have long been lost its fun no matter how old you are.
